Philadelphia Auto Show


The Philadelphia Auto Show is one of the largest auto shows in the country with 250,000 guests annually, a 750,000-square foot display floor, and a regional economic impact of approximately $50 million. It is organized and produced by the Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia, and a portion of ticket proceeds benefit the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation. It is THE best place for consumers in the market to connect with the latest the automotive industry has to offer.

The Philadelphia Auto Show has been connecting consumers and entertaining families since 1902, and the Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia has been producing the show since 1997. It is a non-selling event, meaning sales are not allowed to be made on the floor. It is a show built for you, the consumer, to inspect all angles of the vehicles in a pressure-free environment. The product specialists at each manufacturer booth are simply there to answer any questions you may have about the vehicles.

The show is the largest consumer event in the Pennsylvania Convention Center every year. It annually influences billions in consumer sales. If you come to the event because you are in the market for a new vehicle, chances are you will leave the event knowing exactly what you are going to buy. But don’t worry if you’re not in the market for a new ride! With more than 700 vehicles on display ranging from pre-production models to classics to exotics and then some, there is something for everyone to enjoy.


In addition to its top-notch entertainment factor, the Philadelphia Auto Show also prides itself on its philanthropic giving. All proceeds from its annual charity preview, the Black Tie Tailgate, benefit Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. To date, more than $9.3 million has been raised via the Black Tie Tailgate for CHOP. In addition, the Auto Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia donates a portion from every Auto Show ticket sold to the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation. The Foundation uses the funds for programs benefiting area children like its new coat program, which provides brand new winter coats to the local kids who need them most.

The 2022 Philadelphia Auto Show is scheduled for March 5-13 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. For updates, please monitor
